Recent guest reviews

After reading other Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to stay at this boutique hotel on the Left Bank. I wonder what kind of standards some people have. While the location was good, the hotel was a disappointment. We had even worked with a travel agent who helped us find a hotel to stay for the Christmas weekend with our family of five. But our travel agent should have known better. I would not recommend staying here to anyone. We had booked two rooms and when we arrived they said they did not have our reservation. After I showed them my confirmation paperwork they were able to find our reservation, but then they said it did not include breakfast. My confirmation clearly showed it did. They looked through their notes and said, in fact, yes it did include breakfast. We had booked one room to have three separate beds for our adult children, but the room had one double bed and one pull-out sofa. The hotel staff let us look at other rooms, as there were many rooms available. We were able to find two rooms that were more suitable, but the rooms were dingy, the towels were poor quality, and somewhat dirty. I found someone's lost asthma inhaler under my bed! There are definitely better and similar cost hotels nearby.

I was in this hotel last month. The room was clean. The wifi was ok. The room didn't have a refrigerator. The location was near to sightseeing places. I could got to hotel easily. The receptionist was so helpful. The breakfast was delicious.

Nice looking hotel in a great area, good transport links, walkable to Seine, Notre Dame etc. Loads of shops & restaurants nearby. Lobby & outside are nice. Room is a good size (family room) and clean but the decor is a little tired, not what I expected after checking in downstairs. However, good price for a fantastic location.

This is a small but perfectly formed hotel in an excellent location. Close to a number of sights and excellent food nearby. Breakfast is great, mainly coffee and crossiants but this is Paris, what else do you want😀. Staff were lovely. I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was our last stop on a two week 25th wedding anniversary vacation and it has been lovely. The location is incredible. We are close to events and many restaurants. Our first night there was a problem with our reservation (our mistake) and they offered us an available room without a reservation. We were relieved and very grateful. Staff is kind and courteous. Breakfast is nothing to write home about, but is good. Yes, the room is small, but we didn't spend much time in it because we were sight-seeing.

Nice hotel, more of a B&B than hotel, rooms and breakfast lounge is all there is, rooms are dated but an ok size, a bit dusty(walls & rug)good sleeps and good bed, nice bathrooms, good location, tucked in a small lane but close to shopping and resteraunts, fun bar on same lane, friendly help full staff.

We enjoyed our stay and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and location was prefect. We were close to the metro and within walking distance to many stores and restaurants. My only complaint is that the rooms are outdated and in need of a fresh look.

Very unethical move people from one room to another, without prior advising nor asking permission. I reserved by agency weeks in advance, but The second day, at my coming back in The evening, i was just informed that, due to an Emergency such as a non demonstrated idraulic problem , i was moved to other room. And all my stuff already had. And nobody Asked for my authorization, neither informed me. I felt disappointed but effectively i cannot do anything, i asked to see with my eyes why The room was unavailable and The answer was: "it's no possible because samone is inside". A good position in a famous city doesn't mean for a nice hotel you are free to put hands in client personal belongings. Very unfair, unethic. Hope my review will help new travellers

The hotel is very, very basic. The A/C worked well, the water pressure was good and the location was convenient. The room was sort of clean (the vents in the room and the bathroom were furry and one of our clean towels was soiled) but the real let down was the dinginess of the place. The lighting was really poor, the bedcover clearly filthy, the blanket had the burnt-in impression of an iron, the mattress listed to the north-east. All in all a typical 120 square foot Parisian hotel room with no amenities except the 12" tv on the wall which would be fine in a 2 star, 89 Euro hotel room. However our corporate rate was 240 Euro a night, which should get you something a little less dank, even in Paris. I would highly recommend you avoid unless there are no other options (like now, during Fashion Week).

I give this a 5 star because of the helpfulness of a lady called Farzaneh. I would like to thank her for organising my daughter's room and changing the rooms for when my son and I arrived, so we were all in the same room. Thankyou. The rooms not bad but there was three of us in them, but they were clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and always smiling. Breakfast was ok but coming from people who a very much bacon and eggs, I still.enjoyed it. Location was good and only about a 10 minutes walk to Notre Dame and the hop on hop off buses and some tours. Price was as you would expect for Paris but still reasonable. I would recommend this place
